I swear, she is. (my coach, that is) I just finished my interval hill workout and decided it was a good time to look at my schedules for next week and the week after. Ohmigawd! Drills and techniques and power workouts and the one that really did me in - an hour and a half run with the last three miles at 8:30 pace. Are you kidding me? Did I mention I'm slow? I don't think I can do 8:30 for more than a mile - not a step more than a mile! Holy cow!
I know, wrong attitude. I need to work on that. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. Yikes!
Other than that though, I have to say, I feel pretty darn good about myself today. I ate right yesterday for a change - no extra sugar or fat. I did my work outs as planned. And tomorrow is a rest day. I don't remember the last time I was looking forward to a rest day so much. Oh yeah, and I have a date tonight. Well, sort of a date. I'm meeting this guy for dinner. We've said it's a no pressure thing, just friends. And that's truly what I want at the moment, but it will be nice to get out of the house and eat out for a change. Here's hoping he's the best thing since sliced bread and we hit it off immediately - or he's just a really nice guy who can carry on a conversation and we can truly be friends. Either way - better than some alternatives I can think of. I know, not even close to what you were thinking when you saw this was a blog about running, but it's all about life.
Until next time.... stay warm. Run fast. Be happy.
